Amazing project that Family School just helped create with Canalino Elementary. This image was made as part of an artist residency of Daniel Dancer of Art for the Sky. The whole campus (students, teachers, staff, and families) participated.

A gray whale inked in students splashed briefly onto the field at Canalino and Carpinteria Family schools yesterday. The Art for the Sky project funded by Parents for Canalino involved over 600 students and adults. For more of Robin Karlsson's photos of the incredible artwork, see
